Robert Atkinson

I’m born and raised in Southern California. I began tattooing in 1992 when my friends chipped in to buy me a tattoo kit out of outlaw biker tattoos revue. I spent two years tattooing on my own before getting a job at melrose tattoo. After two year working there I was invited to Royal Tattoo In Denmark and spent 3 years working there with Henning Jorgensen. In 1999 I moved to Holland ana worked at Dragon Tattoo with Greg Orie for two years. In 2001 I moved back home to Los Angeles. In 2014 i Opened Ten Thousand Waves Tattoo in Sherman Oaks with my friend And partner Jojo Ackermann. We’ve been doing our Best since then!
